I have just found it quite annoying when I look at my ships and then my weapon slots.

For example:

Nova Class

2 FWD Phaser banks on the dorsal portion of the hull
2 FWD Phaser banks on the ventral portion of the hull
2 FWD Torpedo Tubes
2 AFT Torpedo Tubes

But we only get:

2 FWD Weapon Slots
1 AFT Weapon Slot

The Centaur:

2 FWD Phaser banks on the dorsal portion of the hull
2 FWD Torpedo Tubes
2 AFT Torpedo Tubes

Yet for the Nova, we can't have 2 SEPERATE BEAM ARRAYS OR 1 DUAL BEAM ARRAY, plus we can't have 2 DIFFERENT TORPEDOS and still have beam arrays.

The idea of the SCE starship modules is to allow captains to customize their ships. However when you change form, you also change function.

Warship Voyager

Had:

30 Torpedo Tubes
25 Phaser Banks
Assult Probes
Fighter Shuttles

Oppossed to for the Intrepid class:

2 FWD, DOR Phaser Arrays
2 FWD, VEN Phaser Arrays
1 DOR Phaser Array behind the Bridge
2 AFT Phaser Arrays
1 VEN Phaser Array extending across the Engineering Hull
2 VEN Phaser Arrays under Nacelle pylons
2 VEN Phaser Arrays on AFT portion of the saucer near the deflector
(Those are the beam ARRAYS)
2 AFT Phaser EMMITERS, 1 in each torpedo tube (VOY: Dragon's Teeth, Prophecy)
1 AFT Phaser Emmiter located behind the 2nd tractor emmiter (VOY: Think Tank)
1 VEN Phaser Emitter embeded on the ventral surface of the starboard nacelle (VOY: Unimatrix Zero)
1 VEN Phaser Emitter embeded on the ventral surface of the port nacelle (implied due to the fact there is one on the starboard side
2 FWD Torpedo Tubes
2 AFT Torpedo Tubes

Total: 17 Phasers & 4 Torpedo Tubes

Yet we only get:
3 FWD Weapon Slots
3 AFT Weapon Slots

This also brings up the question of why we have to wait to fire another phaser round when we can just switch from emmitter to emmitter rather than waiting for the entire FWD phaser system to cooldown. The same goes for torpedoes. We RARELY, PRACTICALLY NEVER, see a ship fire just ONE torpedo. It is a volley that we see go out to do the most damage (rare exception Star Trek Generations). Also when we see the Defiant fire torpedos, we never saw it fire ONE lame torpedo, TWO was the MINIMUM!!!

We deserve more realism in this respect.
Also, we should be able to go to the Observation Lounge when visiting the bridge.

ALSO we shouldn't have to use a BOFF to use the tractor beam
